Saturday Art Club Fall sessions begin Sept. 11 at Jule Collins Smith Museum

AUBURN – The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University will continue its Saturday Art Club, a hands-on experience for students from kindergarten through high school, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m, one Saturday each month throughout the fall and winter. The first session is Saturday, Sept. 11.

Students will work with materials at one of three stations designed for their age group: kindergarten through second grade; third through sixth grade; and seventh through twelfth grade. Parents are encouraged to work with their children or to learn more about the role of art in their child’s life at the parent’s table. An open studio format provides students and parents the flexibility to come and go at any time during the session.

The Saturday Art Club series is made possible by a K-12 Arts Outreach Grant from the City of Auburn. There is no charge, but donations to the education department will ensure the continuation of the program.

Dates for upcoming sessions are Sept. 11, reading and writing with art; Oct. 9, light and shadows, drawing and photography; Nov. 20, weaving; and Dec. 11, drawing animals.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. To preregister, call (334) 844-3486. Self-directed gallery activities are available for those waiting for a seat. Parents are asked to stay with their student for the duration of the session.
